MANILA, Philippines — Ninety Chinese and two Malaysians allegedly violating health and safety protocols for coronavirus disease 2019 or COVID-19 were arrested during a raid on an illegal Philippine offshore gaming operator (POGO) firm in Bacoor, Cavite  on Friday.

The raid stemmed from a complaint that Chinese-looking people were loitering near an apartelle in Barangay Mabolo 1, according to Brig. Gen. Rhoderick Armamento, deputy director for administration of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG).

Aside from not observing social distancing, the suspects were not wearing face masks, reports said.

Villagers told police they thought the apartelle was a quarantine facility.
